Too bad I won't see a cent of it until it reaches $100.

How long should I expect a timing belt/WP to take with two people working on it?

6 Months.

That said if neither of you knows what you are doing budget enough time to do it three times back to back. 16 hours. I'm serious. Everyone else will say 3 hours.

60 gallons, 3.5 HP. Sounds like enough for my amateur usage. Yes?
Cheapest (besides HF) 60 gallon/~3hp/220vac compressor I could find is the Kobalt from Lowes (About $10-15 cheaper than Home Depot's house brand). Add the 10% off coupon at the post office and it gets even cheaper. Harbor freight has them cheaper/same specs but I trust Kobalt's specs over HF's. My current 25?gallon HF compressor does not do what it's supposed to.

I'll pick up the Kobalt if I decide to paint my car in the garage this summer.

EDIT: Lately you can't get to the Kobalt 60gallon just searching kobalt air compressors. If you view their 60gallon Campbell Hausfeld, the kobalt shows up on the right "customers also viewed"

Kobalt $465 with pretty surprising specs:
http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...llow&cId=PDIO1

Campbell Hausf. $479
http://www.lowes.com/pd_102750-1126-...ell%20Hausfeld

And the Husky at $439. Well the Kobalt is still cheaper with the 10% lowes coupon and higher specs. Perhaps you can get some percent off at home depot too with the right coupon or signing up for a credit card?
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...ocStoreNum=906

Damn lookie this one at $400, free shipping. Zooming in on the pic shows same specs to the Kobalt!:

Twice as long as with one person, assuming both are competent. If they are not, then 3-4 times as long.

Got my first moving violation today. Warning only though, 77 in a 60. I only got caught because I had something happen earlier that made me feel dizzy and generally weird, I was kind of out of it on the way home from work. He was chilling on the shoulder with rearward radar and I never saw him until I was passing him. Very cool guy though, younger black man, very polite and friendly. Pleasant surprise, since most cops around here I know are dicks. Didn't have insurance proof though, though I do have insurance, so I can bring it to court and get off. I did have 4 or 5 expired cards though, lol.

For a mere $2500, you too can have your own authentic Baywatch edition Nissan Frontier:

Buffon is on his way over to my crib and we're going to finally get working on his car. Hopefully this'll make me want to finish my Miata.
